The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. FAST TRACK: Open-Source Integrated Design-Analysis Environment for Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 19d

    In 2011, the US electricity generation was 4344 billion kWh gross with 821 TWh (19%) from nuclear power reactors. The US has 104 nuclear power reactors, 69 pressurized water reactors and 35 boiling water reactors, in 31 states, operated by 30 different power companies. Almost all of the US nuclear generating capacity comes from reactors built between 1967 and 1990. There have been no new construc ...

  2. A Design Study for Megawatt Class Waveguide Input Coupler for Synchrotron Light Source Superconducting Cavities

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 03c

    Modern synchrotrons are providing higher beam currents and demanding more RF power from the superconducting cavities. The maximum RF power available without beam is limited by the maximum power rating of the WR1800 waveguide RF ceramic window used in the fundamental power coupler. Operation at this maximum power limit is hampered by the fact that the specific value of power transmitted which pro ...

  3. Ultrafast Electron Diffraction Device for Time-Resolved Chemical Imaging

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 07b

    Because of the need to operate in a space-charge-dominated regime, the generation and preservation of femtosecond electron beams is a major challenge for chemical dynamics and accelerator technology R & amp;D. Electrons from a photo-cathode radio frequency (RF) gun can be used as scattering particles to produce a time-dependent diffraction pattern containing femtosecond time-scale str ...

  4. Developing Rugged, High Quantum Efficiency, Graphene Photocathodes

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 33i

    Photocathodes have been the focus of intense experimental and theoretical development for many decades, and their use in RF photoinjectors has been indispensible for the evolution of light sources such as free-electron lasers. At present there is a significant science and technology gap for photocathodes in the context of the development of high-current electron injectors for next generation ligh ...

  5. NP-DASIC: Low Cost Digital Firmware ASIC Implementation for Nuclear Physics

    SBC: KLIMA, JOANNA            Topic: 40b

    The DOE supports development of technologies essential to experiments in nuclear physics. The channel count of modern nuclear physics experiments has risen into thousands. There is need for cost effective, high density data acquisition (DAQ) systems with many thousands of channels. Our approach will permit. The objective is to develop a digital DAQ systems at cost comparable with the application- ...

  6. Subway Labs: Big Data Tools for Energy Materials R&D

    SBC: VOLTAIQ, INC.            Topic: 01d

    The development of new energy materials and devices is hobbled by inefficient tools for data analysis and management. Across the industry, companies, universities, and national laboratories that develop energy devices (batteries, solar photovoltaics, fuel cells, capacitors) all use specialized test equipment that generates vast quantities of experimental data. The software tools packa ...

  7. GaAsSb/AlGaAsP Superlattice Polarized Electron Source

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 41e

    The negative-electron-affinity (NEA) photocathodes which produce polarized electrons are a vital component of electron accelerators such as that at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) and DoE Jefferson Lab. Future systems, such as the International Linear Collider (ILC), will require a polarized electron beam intensity at least 20 times greater than produced by strained GaAs, which is us ...

  8. Integrated DC-DC Converters Using Thin-Film Magnetic Power Inductors

    SBC: FERRIC, INC.            Topic: 01b

    All computing platforms, from handhelds to servers, can achieve superior energy efficiency with better control of the power supply. An integrated voltage regulator would provide improved control, but requires improvements in on-chip inductors for energy storage. This project will develop manufacturing processes and compact models for thin-film magnetic power inductors. These inductors will incorp ...

  9. Carbon Aerogel Natural Gas Sorbent Energy Storage Material

    SBC: Ceralink, Inc.            Topic: 01b

    Unprecedented reserves of natural gas have recently been unlocked from previously uneconomical shale formations in the United States, leading to a rapid decline in the price of this fossil fuel energy source. In the U.S., natural gas vehicle utilization has been limited by several factors, including the lack of refueling locations and plentiful mass-produced CNG vehicle models. A significant limit ...

  10. Novel Materials for Higher Order Mode Suppressors

    SBC: Nano Materials Innovation Center, Llc            Topic: 32b

    There is a need to increase the beam intensity of particle accelerators based on superconducting RF cavities, but detrimental Higher Order Modes (HOMs) generate inside the cavities. HOMs excite the beam and lead to instabilities and particle losses. HOM dampers absorb this RF power and are critical component, but next generation HOM absorber materials are needed to enable increased beam intensitie ...
